Live room A (East view)

We have several large and small rooms to accommodate all your recording needs. Live Room A: Big enough for a moderate sized band and houses our Yamaha C7. This room is connected to 2 booths with physical sight lines and the rest of the studio is supported by a video system with a number of cameras and screens for maximum communication whether it's a large band or multiple voices on an ADR project. Live Room B:  A great auxiliary room, perfect for strings, horns or vocalists when you have a band in Live Room A.
